Nicholas George Wilson, 32, of Smith Road, Workington, was accused of striking 17-year-old Jack Greggain last October.

It was alleged that there had been an argument over the £15 cost of a replacement licence plate after Mr Wilson had hit Mr Greggain’s motor scooter in a road collision.

Mr Wilson stood trial at Carlisle Crown Court this week where he had always denied a charge of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

The jury found Wilson not guilty of the charge and he was officially cleared.
